This collection called 'Jack' from Astali is a jewelry collection made mainly from snake vertebrae. There are bracelets, earrings and necklaces in this range, which are one stop short of taxidermy.

If you're invited to dinner with someone with a debilitating fear of snakes, this line might not be perfect for you. For someone whose interests lean towards the unusual and quirky, however, they're certainly worth a look.

Implications - Jewelry companies have to maintain a unique selling point that sets them aside from similarly designed pieces. By creating their line to push the boundary of design, a company has a better chance of standing out in their category.
